Day 001 - The Sledding Snow Eater


My 365 Photo Project

Day 001 - Sledding with Sydney "aka the Snow Eater"

We were lucky to have a few inches of snow come through yesterday, which gave us the opportunity to get out today and take Sydney sledding at the park down the street. She had a blast, and I was more in awe of the fact that our kiddo didn't need any help and got right to it on her own! She laughed and had a ton of fun with her friend Abby...definitely a great way to kick off the New Year!

Reflections on 2012

In 2012 ...

I lost 10lbs (yeah!). Then injured myself, fell off the wagon and gained it back (boo!). I stopped drinking pop for 6 months. Challenged myself to eat better and rethink how to fuel this machine. I worked a lot and played some too. I had the opportunity to travel to the Pacific NW, Colorado Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska and bike 80 miles on the Katy Trail in Missouri. I watched my daughter melt my heart, test my patience, and leave me speechless, laughing or in awe. I welcomed some fabulous little people in to the world. Made some memorable moments with my family and friends. Celebrated milestones. I took pictures, pictures, and more pictures...and I did a horrible job updating this blog.

So in 2013 ... I plan to do many more things, travel more places, celebrate more milestones, take hundreds of more photos, spend time with family and friends, live, laugh, love and just do better. Do and be better...all around.

For myself.

For my family.

For my friends.

And for this blog!

So here's to another New Year, with endless opportunities and many more doors that we can choose to open or close...just be grateful for all of them.

Connor's 1st Birthday

We had the pleasure of attending an amazing first birthday a few weekends ago that was circus themed...here are some of the pics I took!

Wall of E...

I'm having fun doing a few new things around the house. I love collecting letters and such and happened to run across a few of these this past weekend in the West Bottoms. So...I decided to create a wall of E's!
